20 The real secret to glowing skin (and you won’t have to spend a dime on products)
Are you tired of spending a sh*t ton of money on lotions, potions and procedures trying to achieve glowing skin and not seeing a return on your investment?I get it, and you’re not alone. Did you know the average American woman spends upwards of $250,000 or more on her appearance and yet studies show that less than 5% of women would consider themselves beautiful?It’s frustrating, but there’s also an explanation for it that we strip down in this episode. I had the pleasure of being a speaker on the Mama, Rise Up! Summit recently hosted by my friend and colleague Dr. Sue McCreadie.  It was such a juicy conversation that dares to bare all and reveal the real secret to glowing skin that won’t cost you a dime. So I wanted to share it with you here on the podcast as well.In this episode, you’ll hear myself and Dr. Sue as we peel back the layers of myths and misconceptions about what skincare is and what it isn’t, and how to get the best return on your skincare investments.Dr. Sue McCreadie is Pediatrician and Breakthrough coach for midlife mamas.  As a midlife Mama herself, Dr. Sue stumbled upon her second calling. She helps Mamas master their mental-emotional health, break through midlife mayhem, and live a fulfilling life – re-energized, empowered, and knowing their soulFULL way.Host: Dr. Keira BarrEditor: Abigail CerquitellaAre you ready to shed the worry and anxiety getting under your skin and start tapping into more pleasure?

16 You won't be truly happy until you say F*** it to THIS
I was riding my Peloton this morning, and all of a sudden it hit me…If I ever want to live the life of my dreams, I have to say F*** it to this.You do too.What do we need to say F*** it to?Dreaming, visualizing, and fantasizing about your future self.Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for having big dreams and ambitious goals and putting a plan into action to accomplish them. What I’m not for is consuming all our time and energy with these things at the expense of being in relationship with our present moment experience.Life is lived in THIS moment.Here. Now.And if you’re always dreaming about what you’ll experience in the future,  you gloss over what you’re experiencing now. And you’ll never experience the happiness, joy and contentment you dream about.Saying F*** it to living in the future is the missing piece to lasting happiness. When you stay present, you create space for joy.This episode is personal, it’s important, and actionable, and most of all – it’s packed with techniques you can start using right now.I hope this episode shifts your perspective in the way that it did mine, and makes you understand yourself a little bit better.Host: Dr. Keira BarrEditor: Abigail CerquitellaDISCLAIMERThis podcast is meant for educational and informational purposes only.
